The European Day of Languages 2017

The European Day of Languages 2017

The European Day of Languages is now an annual event which is firmly fixed in our Modern Photo SNHSLanguages department calendar.

The stated aims of this day, which is celebrated in school during the week of 26th September, are to raise awareness of the importance of language learning and intercultural understanding, to promote the rich cultural diversity of Europe and the wider world and to encourage lifelong language learning. 

The challenge for Y7 is to create a hat based on a country of their choice. The enthusiasm for the task and the quality of entries this year was outstanding.  We saw an exceptionally high level of creativity and hours of meticulous care with colouring, sticking and sewing. Choosing the winners was more difficult than ever but after much deliberation, the final overall winner for girls was Chloe Thornton with her magnificent Big Mac and for boys, Nicholas Warner (7D) with his superb hat depicting all things Italian.

Photo2 SNHSYear 8 pupils were required to research a country of their choice and present their work to their class.  We enjoyed a wide variety of presentation styles, with some beautiful artwork and good use of technology to produce lively interactive presentations.  We saw examples of excellent team work and great communication skills – there were definitely a few budding teachers to look out for.

Finally, to ensure that the whole school could be involved, form groups participated in an MFL quiz, which tested pupils’ general European knowledge.
